Elis Regina hits the London scene of the late 60s – with amazing results that make the album one of her best from the early years! The style here is still quite bossa-oriented, but backings are done by Peter Knight – who'd worked with Scott Walker and some of the other hip British singers at the time – so the sound's a bit different than Elis' Brazilian records, too. Knight's quite sensitive to Regina's way of interpreting a tune – and he nicely follows the soaring, jazzy vibe that Roberto Menescal had given her at home. But the groove's also a bit more open and fluid too – with some slight Brit Easy touches that really send the whole album home! Titles include a great version of "Upa Neguinho", plus "O Barquinho", "Zazueira", "Giro", "A Volta", "Corrida De Jangada", "Watch What Happens", and "Wave".

EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy
A pretty sweet album by Elis Regina – and one of the last she ever did! The arrangements have a bit more of an electric jazz sound than usual – but they actually give her voice a nice sound, and create some nice lush soulful tracks that have a very sweet sound. Cesar Mariano is still ... CD

Joia (with bonus tracks)
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Caetano Veloso in a wonderfully intimate mode – singing in this great spare setting that features only a bit of minimal instrumentation on guitar, percussion, and keyboards – a style that's very much in the best territory of his Qualquer Coisa record! Veloso's vocals are wonderful in ... CD

Muito (with bonus tracks)
Philips (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A late 70s gem from Caetano Veloso – masterfully understated, and handled in a mature "no tricks" mode, one that he began adopting strongly as he increased his abilities in songwriting and arranging in the latter half of the decade! The tracks are less crazy than on earlier records ... CD

Outras Palavras
Philips (Japan), 1981. New Copy
Pure, simple genius from Caetano Veloso – a record that doesn't have all the striking elements of the early years, but which is equally powerful in its own right! Caetano's got a directness with his songwriting and vocals that's really wonderful – an ability to bring a bit of soul into ... CD

Tempo Presente
Philips (Japan), 1980/1998. New Copy
Wonderfully warm electric work from Edu Lobo – a sublime late 70s set that we'd stack right up there with our favorite albums of the time by artists like Joyce, Marcos Valle, or Joao Donato! As with all three of those artists, Edu uses some 70s electric elements to really transform his sound ... CD

Lugar Comum
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A sweet electric 70s session from the mighty Joao Donato – very different than his earlier bossa work of the 60s – and with the same funky appeal as the best work on his classic Quem E Quem album! This set's got a tighter feel overall – very much in a samba soul style, with lots ... CD

Meu Primeiro Amor
Philips (Japan), 1975. New Copy
Light and lovely tunes from Nara Leao – a sweet mid 70s session that's filled with great vocals and a fair bit of acoustic guitar! The sound here isn't nearly as dark as Leao's work of the 60s – and even as some of her albums from a few years before – but the record's still rich ... CD

Gal Costa (1969)
Polygram/Dusty Groove, 1969. New Copy
One of the most mindblowing albums ever recorded – anywhere, anytime! This 1969 set stands as one of the greatest records ever cut by Gal Costa – done at the height of the Tropicalia movement, and featuring a sublime mix of styles that really gets the spirit of the movement right. ... CD

I'm Fine, How Are You?
Warner (Japan), 1977. New Copy
A lot smoother than most of Airto's other work – and almost more of a soul record than a jazz one – but also a great batch of grooves with a really spirited feel! Airto's percussion is still relatively up front in the mix, and smooth funky LA arrangements take the album to a warm ... CD

Joao
Verve (Japan), 1991. New Copy
A later album by bossa legend Joao Gilberto – but with all the fragile brilliance of his best early work! The album features arrangements by Clare Fischer – the wonderful talent behind some of the best Brazilian-tinged jazz sessions of the 60s and 70s, a perfect accompanist to Joao's ... CD
